It seems I have TONS of system processes running and it's making my computer so slow. How do I know which ones I can remove and which ones are essential? It seems like some of them are double or triple and are taking up so much memory. Is there a list someplace that explains what all of the processes are and which ones I have to keep running?

Thanks!!!

The best way to search about a process is to search google.com

Open google and search your desired process . You'll get a lot of info on that process

That tool will put a tab in your Control Panel called "Start Up" and allow you to select which programs you want to run at boot. It is very handy for start ups that have no way to shut them down from within themselves, like updaters and QuickTime. If you change your mind about something, toggle it back.
Hope this helps.
